Touchdowns are still very important for fantasy football production. The best odds of a player scoring is to have as many chances as possible, as close to the goal-line as possible. Here is Red Zone Report Week 7, looking at all of the red zone opportunities from all teams that played in week 7.

A red zone opportunity is defined as a rushing attempt or passing target on any play where the football was snapped within 20 yards of the goal-line that the offense is trying to cross. For the rest of this article, the words Red Zone will be replaced by RZ.
